If you saw my post yesterday you saw my tea pouring experiment where I showed off my new Covid-19 skills. You also might think that I am losing it a little bit. I really am fine.
Today my post might demonstrate yet another facet of my talented and wonderful self. Today I bring you my almost 1 year old Siberian wonder cat – Maksim.
There has been much in the news about wearing masks. Seems that there are two distinct camps that are the most vocal. Those that support wearing masks and those that don’t. Frankly I have seen some pretty hateful things said by both sides of the debate but I won’t do that here.
I am Team Mask. It makes sense to me to keep my particles to myself if I can and while I know that nothing is 100% effective at this point I will do my part. Plus our governor has asked us to wear them when we are outside of our home and inside buildings as well as wearing them outside when we can not socially distance by 6 feet. I have no problem doing this and thought I would throw my hat in the ring for promoting proper mask wearing.
Who would have thought that a little face covering could cause so much controversy? Not me. There are a lot of articles circulating about the effectiveness of masks, the best types to wear, when to wear them and how to wear them. Of course it is in individual choice but my opinion is if I can do anything to help stop the spread I will do it. After all – I have a mother in a nursing home in Ohio that I want to be able to see as soon as I can and if wearing a mask helps me get to her faster than I will do it.
Thanks for always laughing along with me here on It’s Just Life. I don’t always want to take life too seriously and I am grateful to my readers for joining me and reading all of my silliness. Please leave me a comment and tell me what you think of my mask model. Each comment this month means a 50 cent donation to our Comments for a Cause – Transylvania Christian Ministry Sharing House.

Maskim Maksim makes masks. Try saying that! You and Maskim are both social media stars and influencers. Thank you for the PSA
Maskim Maksim models masks — there’s another tongue twister for you! I’m sure he loved the mask — HA!
He doesn’t look especially happy. It is fun to see the different patterns for masks and the neat fabrics some people have used. Wear your mask as a fashion or special interest statement?
Maksim makes the best modal for the use of a mask. Love that little face. So far we have not made Dot wear a mask. LOL
Maksim is a good sport and a good model for wearing masks.
Maksim makes a good model even with the showing of teeth. We agree masks are important. What ever we can do.
I’ve been waiting for this. I’d love little cards of the masked Maksim photos to pass out to those who are not wearing masks or are wearing them incorrectly under their noses. It’s such a simple thing we can do, this wearing of masks. I fail to understand why people are so opposed to wearing them. You know my frustration. Thanks for the humorous take on this topic.
I’ve heard that if we all just wore the masks when we’re near other people we could get this under control in 2 months.
Poor Maksim. Bet he’s team anti-mask. 🙂 I’m with you though and am firmly team mask. Better safe, than sorry.
You are brave to try to mask Maksim. I just try to keep mine all home.
Trust me— he stays home although he likes to try to slip out the front door occasionally. Gotta stay on my toes!
